Veterinary Physiotherapy

Onsite Veterinary Physiotherapy by Lucy Walsh.

If your dog is exhibiting a sudden behaviour change, or issues with reactivity, anxiety or resource guarding we may ask that you have your dog checked over by a vet and/or a veterinary physiotherapist to rule out any underlying conditions or pain that may be causing or contributing to the behaviour issues that we are working to improve.

How can Veterinary Physiotherapy help my dog?

Identifying Pain

Whether it's due to an injury, illness, or the natural effects of aging, pain can be a common experience for dogs. Although your dog may not appear to be in pain, as they are unable to communicate with us directly, pain can often be missed. Whilst a vet can pick up any major issues, extensive and expensive further testing would be required to ensure that your dog is completely fit and well. Physiotherapy can be a cost-effective way of exploring our dog’s health further and picking up any muscular or joint issues.

Improved Quality of Life

Physiotherapy can provide numerous benefits for dogs in terms of their overall health and well-being. Physiotherapy for dogs focuses on enhancing muscle strength, flexibility, and range of motion. Just as humans benefit from physical therapy, dogs can experience remarkable improvements in their mobility, pain management, and recovery from various conditions or injuries through targeted exercises and techniques.
